The purest Zoom-Zoom yet
Breakthrough SKYACTIV TECHNOLOGY is behind the exhilarating, yet economical performance. The innovation is applied to every element of the vehicle, unlocking superior handling and better fuel efficiency.
All-New MX-5 is significantly lighter than the previous model. The chassis, body and suspension system are more rigid thanks to innovative SKYACTIV TECHNOLOGY.
Precise 50:50 front–to-rear weight distribution and a lower centre of gravity creates perfect balance which translates to more nimble and direct handling – giving the driver intuitive feedback and confidence in the abilities of All-New MX-5.
It’s a feeling we call Jinba Ittai – the philosophy of ‘horse and rider as one’.
SKYACTIV-G Petrol Engines
Our new generation SKYACTIV-G petrol engines deliver an exhilarating drive by unleashing more power and torque from less fuel.
Internal components have been designed to reduce weight and friction, while the ultra-high compression ratio of 13.0:1 and unique piston design promotes more effective fuel combustion throughout the RPM range.
SKYACTIV-G 1.5L Petrol Engine
The SKYACTIV-G 1.5L petrol engine is specially-tuned to achieve 150Nm of torque and 96kW of power with outstanding fuel economy of 6.1L/100km (combined manual). This gives MX-5 sporty performance that responds quickly to your commands.
SKYACTIV-G 2.0L Petrol Engine
The SKYACTIV-G 2.0L petrol engine unleashes even more exhilaration with 118kW of power and 200Nm of torque from just 6.9L/100km (combined manual). The extra power and torque delivers powerful acceleration across the RPM range to give you more of that Zoom-Zoom feeling.
The development of the MX-5 SKYACTIV-CHASSIS focused on achieving superior handling and stability, with faithful responses in every driving situation.
The vehicle’s posture has been crafted for flawless cornering, acceleration and braking to engage in a harmonious conversation with the open road.
By sending power to the rear wheels and letting the front wheels do the steering, you truly experience the Jinba Ittai feeling of control.
As the first Mazda to feature Double-Pinion Electric Power Assist Steering (DP-EPAS) system, All-New MX-5 delivers the pure driving pleasure of a sports car. The steering system ensures quick, direct responses at your command previously unseen in an electric system.
The new SKYACTIV-BODY is assembled with materials explicitly selected to keep it light, yet rigid.
Constructed from a combination of ultra-high-tensile steel and high-strength aluminium, the body is designed with integrity to be strong without bulk.
Experience the excitement of faithful responses each time you change gears, with light and smooth shift operations. The newly developed 6-speed SKYACTIV-MT manual transmission delivers a lively performance and superior fuel economy.
As one of the world’s lightest transmissions, it’s helped keep MX-5’s weight down.
